Mac & Cheese Contest

CONCORD - On January 18th, NH dairy farmers will host New Hampshire’s third annual Macaroni & Cheese Bake-Off at the Courtyard Marriot in Concord. Doors open to the public at 2:00 p.m.

Cabot has offered free cheese to any contestant, or restaurant registering their dish early. To take advantage of this offer, you must enter your dish by January 3rd. More than half of NH’s working dairy farms send milk to Cabot.

Contestants can enter into one of four categories; best traditional, most creative exotic, best restaurant/café or best NH made. Contestants entering the NH Made category must use 100% NH made milk and cheese in their dish. The winner of the “NH Made” category will have his or her recipe prepared by Master Chef Jeffrey Paige and featured on the menu of Cotton Restaurant in Manchester, NH.

Entries will be judged on texture, taste and overall cheesiness. Each category will have 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes. The winner of each category will move on for their chance to be crowned the “2013 Grand Champion of Macaroni and Cheese.”

For those who would like to taste and not bake, tickets will be sold at the door for $10.00. Children 12 and under are $3.00. The public can cast their vote for the “People’s Choice award.” Score cards will be handed out for tasters to vote on their favorite recipes.

For those entering the competition, register early. Cabot’s offer of free cheese expires January 3rd. All other entries must be received by January 14th. For rules and registration information, visit
